As you may have seen, there was a recent special on Animal Planet about mermaids titled, "Mermaids: The Body Found". In this special, scientists tear away at the fantasy mermaids we all know so well, and look at the anatomy, social behaviors and physiology of merfolk. In one scene in particular, they show drawings and replicas of what a mermaids skull might look like. When I found this, I said hmm... looks familiar? And my boyfriend agreed! Take a look ;)
|As you can see, both have a crest on the head.|
Although some of the features in the drawing
are smaller, how much is false, and how much
is true about this documentary?
